Diabetes Alert Day

3/28/2017 4:50pm

Tuesday, March 28th is American Diabetes Association (ADA) Alert Day! On this “one-day wake-up call,” join ADA in raising awareness around the seriousness of type 2 diabetes. Encourage members in your community and workplaces to take the Diabetes Risk Test to determine their risk for diabetes or prediabetes.

 

The Diabetes Risk Test is free, anonymous, and available online, or at your local health center. Learn if you are at risk for diabetes by answering questions regarding family history and your physical activity by completing this 60-second test.

 

Share the risk test within your networks and on social media with the hashtags #DiabetesAlertDay and #Type2Diabetes to continue the fight against diabetes!
